I LOVE Painted Ponies!! I used to have nearly the entire herd from the very first year, and all were 1E's. When I became ill and was no longer able to work I sadly had to sell them, but being 1E's they brought very good prices. Still, I do wish I still had them. I currently have two Ponies yet. If you can get the 1E's, they tend to really go up in value, especially the older, retired Ponies. Karuna is my favorite.
